Hi Norman, most of the mature Chinook salmon that are ready to spawn this fall are either in the tributaries already, or at the harbor mouths ready to run up.

The salmon that are not spawning this fall (silver lake fish), are out in 150′ of water and deeper, feeding on baitfish all year long. You can use the same techniques that work throughout the summer for all lake salmon to catch them; downriggers, Dipsey Divers, sinking long-lines, spoons, flasher/flies, cut-bait rigs, etc.
